1 He comes! He comes! the Saviour dear,
The Seventh Trumpets speaks him near;
His Light'nings Flash, his Thunders roll,
He's welcome to the faithful Soul;
Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome,
Welcome, to the faithful Soul.

2 From Heav'n angelic voices sound!
See the Almighty Jesus crown'd!
Girt with Omnipotence and Grace,
And Glory decks the Saviour's Face;
Glory, Glory, Glory, Glory,
Glory decks the Saviour's Face.

3 Descending on his Azure Throne,
He claims the Kingdom for his own;
The Kingdoms all obey his Word,
And hail him their Triumphant LORD:
Hail him, hail him, hail him, hail him,
Hail him their Triumphant LORD.

4 Shout all the People of the Sky,
And all the Saints of the most High;
Our GOD, who now his Right obtains,
For ever and for ever Reigns;
Ever, ever, ever, ever,
Ever and for ever Reigns.

5 The Father praise, the Son adore,
The Spirit bless for ever more;
Salvation's glorious Work is done,
We welcome the Great THREE IN ONE!
Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome,
Welcome the Great THREE IN ONE!
